The 2013 Polar Bear Plunge is Coming! [Video]
I have said it multiple times before . . . jumping into a freezing-cold lake is the single WORST idea in history and the single-worst way to raise money for a charity. LOL! But, you know what! We're doing it anyway and we are going to have a blast. :)
That photo is from the 2011 Plunge, when it was around 30 degrees outside with a wind chill of approximately 20! The water was actually WARMER than the air outside!! It was crazy and we want you to get crazy with us!!
The 2013 Polar Bear Plunge is coming up Saturday, February 9th at The Hines Center in Owensboro and we are truly going to be "freezin' for a reason." All proceeds from the Plunge benefit Special Olympics Kentucky.
Take a look and see how the Plunge works.
This year, we have nominated a very special team captain to lead WBKR's plungers! Jimmy Parrot!
Yep! We are calling our 2013 team Jimmy Parrot's Plungers and Jimmy has agreed to be our team captain! Now, that doesn't mean he is going to take the plunge. I asked him to and he replied, "Are you crazy, Tad? It's too cold!" LOL! But, he HAS agreed to come to the event, wear a cape and a crown, and bark orders at us and make the rest of us plunge on his behalf!
So, what do you say? Wanna join our team? Last year, we had a record turnout at the Owensboro Plunge and raised a record $54,000. This year, we are aiming even higher! Our goal is $60,000!
